The NHL trade deadline is still more than five full weeks away. But that doesn’t mean teams aren’t heavily scouting right now, looking at all the pieces they might want to acquire from other teams, either at the NHL or minor-pro level. Such is the case with the Philadelphia Flyers regarding the Avalanche right now.
I’m not going to reveal the people by name from the Flyers who have been watching Avalanche organizational activities a lot these last couple of days. I don’t mind naming the teams who are scouting at Avs games, but I draw the line at giving the actual names of the personnel involved. That doesn’t mean I won’t hint around some; A high-ranking member of the Flyers organization took in the Avs-Lightning game last night, and took in the Colorado Eagles game tonight in Loveland, too.
